DESCRIPTION

Purpose:
The goal of this initiative is to provide free grocery delivery to those in the community that have severe mobility issues and other health problems that prevent them from getting groceries for themselves. In addition to this we provide delivery to those who consider themselves to be at high risk for COVID19 infection.

General Overview of Activities:
• Volunteers will be assigned to one person on need; screened and assigned by ASPIRE.
• The client will provide a grocery list up to a maximum of 80 dollars to which brand names and preferences are given.
• At pre-arranged times, volunteers will shop at a grocery store in the area and then provide contactless delivery to the client’s place of residence. Grocery deliveries are limited to once a week at maximum.
• Following drop-off, the client is to e-transfer the whole amount to the volunteer. Volunteers will be reimbursed by ASPIRE if they do not receive payment within a reasonable window after delivery.

Where:
Currently, the Grocery Delivery Initiative is providing service in Windsor, ON.
